Bruce Rits Gilbert
Is Bruce Rits Gilbert really a musician? I mean, he was a corporate lawyer for 30+ years, and he couldn't even imagine writing songs until a few years ago. But does it count that he saw the Beatles live and in person in 1964? And does it matter that he was a disk jockey in the 1970s? I don't know.
But somehow, after a lifetime of playing air guitar, and inspired by The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, John Prine, and Bob Dylan, along with other great singer-songwriters, Bruce began his journey a few short years ago with a cheap acoustic guitar and a few songwriting ideas. So maybe, possibly, he's kind of almost a real musician now. Maybe.
And is Bruce Rits Gilbert really an author? Well, he wrote a book called John Prine One Song at a Time. So, yeah, he's an author, too.
